Technical Note

Abstract

Necessary conditions are derived for optimal control problems subject to isoperimetric constraints and for optimal control problems with inequality constraints at the terminal time. The conditions are derived by transforming the problem into the standard form of optimal control problems and then using Pontryagin's principle.
